Jena has been with Skin Sessions since 2014 with a focus on Skin Care, Lashes and Brows. Jena’s personal mantra of “self love is where it all starts,” guides her practice as she helps clients beautify internally in addition to externally. Providing a relaxing space for her clients to rejuvenate, transform, or heal is important, so Jena has co-created a perfectly tucked away Oasis right in the center of San Francisco.
Jena is frequently participating in workshops and seminars in order to provide cutting edge treatments using the most modern technologies and processes. Jena is widely known as a Master in the Lash Art with rave reviews about the dramatic difference she creates in her client while still maintaining a completely natural look and feel. Jena teaches several lash courses for artists of all levels.
In her spare time, Jena loves camping, hiking, yoga and meditation, tennis, swimming, and all sorts of outdoor activities. “Make up just doesn’t mix well with my lifestyle. When my skin and lashes are taken care of, I can wake up and spring into action,” she says. Jena and her boyfriend often take mini trips in their RV to places like the Russian River, Big Sur, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, where she can happily travel lighter as a result of having her skin and lashes taken care of while in The City.
My mission is to provide the most effective cutting edge techniques that continually improve my clients overall quality of life and well-being. This includes, empowering and teaching my clients so that they can self-heal and optimize care at home.
I obtained a BA in Medical Anthropology from the University of New Orleans, completed the Professional Massage Therapy and Master Bodyworker programs from The Utah College of Massage Therapy, and received National Certification in Massage Therapy. The training I received from the Utah College of Massage Therapy, included over 1,300 hours of training in anatomy, physiology, pathology and Eastern paradigm/Western bodyworker modalities.
Thereafter, I became the massage therapy trainer at the Ritz Carlton, New Orleans and Half Moon Bay. While there, I mastered the Bar Method discipline, which allowed me to incorporate muscle isolation and rebuilding into my practice. I have over 13 years experience in Massage Therapy, having spent 9 of those years as the Lead Massage Therapist at Always Tan Skin + Body.
I am blessed and excited to create a full spectrum experience at Skin Sessions, which includes many tension relieving techniques along with light and sound therapy. All of my massages are customizable and can include a combination of practices to best suit your needs and goals. Every appointment begins with a quick consultation enabling us to co-create an experience that optimizes your fluctuating needs.
